A few days ago my toddler made a mess eating some chocolate cake. Not exactly an unusual scenario one would think. Definitely not one which would usually make you cry for 30 minutes is it?
This week I am in my 34th week of pregnancy and well I’ve cried a bit. By a bit I mean at least once a day and for at least 5 minutes at a time.
One day was particularly bad and I cried most of the day for no reason or for completely irrational reasons.
Reasons I’ve cried this week:
* Toddler making a mess
* Toddler being loving
* OH being in work
* Forgetting to bake
* Being sore
* Forgetting to blog
* Feeling fat
* Worrying I haven’t gained enough weight
* Worrying I’ve gained too much weight
* Thoughtful friends
* Thoughtless friends
* Loving my pantry
* Feeling my baby move
* Watching my toddler hug and chat to my belly
* My lovely man
* The film About Time
* Surprise Surprise
* Tipping food/drinks over the floor
So why am I so hormonal?
Well firstly it’s totally normal. The Third Trimester is full of anxiety,fear and highly emotional.
I asked my twitter followers about it and these are some of the responses I had:
* Cried when boyfriend couldn’t decide what he wanted for dinner
* Cried because my freezer was too full
* Cried because OH didn’t put enough cheese on my nachos.
* Cried because daughter had nappy rash
Others said they had irrational fears or major anxiety. It seems its not just our physical bodies going through turmoil at this stage.
Anyway after shedding a lot of tears watching absolutely beautiful film About Time last night today I feel brighter and I haven’t cried once. Woohoo.
Now if someone could stop kicking me between the legs repeatedly all night long that would be great.. I mean someone must be doing that right. Ouch.
Here is a bump pic for all you bump lovers:
28 weeks pregnant here and on the verge of tears at least once a day, but usually more. Today it was because it started raining while I was hauling groceries and everything got wet. *Sigh* I feel your pain! Best of luck in your last few weeks of pregnancy!

I feel your pain as I was there too, this time last year. I used to torment myself by watching OBEM and Greys Anatomy which are tear jerkers anyway.
